The youngster I met in the streets of Yangon painted thanaka on his face. Not only the cheek but also the whole of his face was painted. The surface of his face was dappled like a work of a rude plasterer.
Perhaps he thought he applied camouflage face paint like a soldier. Yet I thought to walk with such white face was highly visible in the city center. In fact, he was easy to notice and I talked to him as soon as I found him.
